A new year and a new look for Cetus!

Happy New Year from the Cetus Crew!
After our crazy Christmas Day bash from Salinas to Juncalito we headed up to one of our favorite anchorages to sit out a Norther: Isla Coronados.
We enjoyed hiking around the island for several relaxing days and when the norther died down we hoisted our anchor and headed back in to Marina Chica in Puerto Escondido and enjoyed New Years Eve with friends.
We decided to keep the boat at the dock to make it easier for Terry to get boat projects done while I flew to Seattle to house and critter sit for our daughter and her husband as they went on their yearly mid January sun break vacation.
While I was gone Terry was busy preparing the blue stripe on Cetus for repainting. We originally added the blue stripe in 2008 changing Cetus’ look from her original all white hull. Now it was time for a fresh coat of paint — but I thought it was time for another change and I convinced Terry to switch from the blue to a Steel Grey.
So once I returned from the States we got busy painting. Terry had even gotten the tedious taping done in addition to all of the surface prep — so we were rolling and tipping in no time!
Changing the color turned it in to a much bigger project than if we would have merely put on a new coat of blue, but with one side done we are both happy with the fresh new look and feel it was worth it.
Once this painting is finally wrapped up it will be off to the nearby islands for some R&R!
